The coast of Donegal invites the visitor to explore a stunning array of sailing waters with its unspoilt offshore islands, breathtaking landscapes and unrivalled natural beauty – it really, is a cruiser’s paradise. Experience the challenges and thrills of rounding Malin Head – Ireland’s most northerly point or relax in the many sheltered bays and sea Loughs that Donegal has to offer such as Lough Swilly, which has a thriving sailing community and a modern marina at Fahan. Sligo’s dynamic coastal environment is set against a backdrop of the Ben Bulben and some truly magnificent mountainous scenery. Sligo is also blessed with glassy lakes and beautiful beaches, perched right on the edge of the Atlantic, which inspired the poetry of WB Yeats. Sligo Yacht Club based at Rosses Point is one of the oldest in the country and is host to several annual competitions and sail training programmes.
Weather permitting the uninhabited Inishmurray is well worth a visit, to see the remarkable and unusually well preserved 6th century monastic buildings.
